Alex lowering off the Dog. Not exactly an "Action Photo", but you may find it useful for route-finding.  Check out the chunky upper wall, which, when we inspected it carefully, had bail 'biners all over it - hard stuff!

Egghead, with base of Sign Language in the background.  The worst (ie the start) is over.

Comments: There are some high quality routes here, but my favorite part of this area is the bouldering on top of the wall.

Above the east face, look for an overhanging lip traverse requiring heel hooks and monkey moves. Right next to it is a tall golden face with reachy crimp moves. Over on the western side of the summit are some more problems, overhangs and traverses.

A good way to finish off your day!

Comments: One of my Bay Area favorites. The start frustrates a lot of people, but once you get past it, it's sustained and intense. If you have a TR set up on it, you can climb up Amazing Face a bit and swing over to skip the start. That's cheating, to be sure, but if the first couple moves are stumping you, at least you can enjoy the rest of it.

I agree - the start is pretty harsh for 5.11b, but I found the climb eases up a lot until the arrete at the top. Maybe I just need work on my arrete technique. Regardless, it's a great climb, but stiff for the grade.
